Forum: GratefulDead Subject: MOTB Better? Why Don't You Be The Judge...5/1/81

New MOTB upload of another great Spring 81 masterpiece. Is it better than the Wise AUD that's been available for some time and is outstanding in it's own right? Well, to my ears I get a little more on the low end and a touch overall fuller sound, but that's just me. This recording easily stacks up to the fine SBD of the same show. And the show? Well, it doesn't take much to get me to put this sucker up to 11. And, yes, there is also a 16 bit available.

Hey, sorry to focus on the early 80's again, but these bastards just wont stop uploading new MOTB's of my favorite shows.

...and this show is currently up for discussion as having one the all time great LIG's....

I will have to listen to the MOTB later, but find it hard to believe it can be an improvement over the current AUD, which is simply one of the finest ever and one of only 2 I would choose over a SBD of the same show (6/22/73 being the other)

still, your post has me believing that a 5-star sound/performance show could be even better...will check back later...

I sat in the loge, about 20 feet off to the left of the stage for this one, my 2nd show ever, and I'll attest to some rather magical happenings, floating band members, etc, even if most of it occured inside my own head. I do also remember some sort of carnival afterwards and the night sky full of diamonds. The whole Spring tour had a feel that I never again was able to duplicate, the Bobby Sands show a few nights later inching us all closer to the abyss.
